Grilled Cheese and Bacon Sandwich

What’s your I’m-in-a-hurry- and- the-kiddos-have-got-to-eat-meal?  Last week I was in the position where I had literally 25 minutes to come up with a meal.  I used to stop by a fast food drive thru at moments like this.  But then there came a time when I had to learn how to budget – and spending $25-$30 at a drive thru began to seem ridiculous when I could spend that same amount at the grocery store and come up with three meals. 
So when I am in a bind I try to think, is the $25-$30 worth it – especially considering the amount of time spent in the drive thru is about the same amount of time I could spend in the kitchen cooking something up? Nope.
Times like these I turn to one of my no-fail grilled cheese recipes.  I figure with the turkey bacon, cheese and bread I have covered at least three of the major food groups.  All I have to do is add a can of vegetable soup and I am completely nutritionally covered – and it only took me less than 30 whole minutes!  Winning!
